BRITISH ARMOUR REACHES AIRBORNE TROOPS
REINFORCEMENTS POURED INTO HOLLAND
SECOND ARMY BEYOND EINDHOVEN
A BOULOGNE FORTRESS FALLS TO CANADIANS
Airborne troops and supplies were still being poured into Holland yesterday, and the First Airborne Army has gained its initial objectives and taken prisoners.
The first advanced armoured patrols of the British Second Army driving north from the Belgian border have established contact with the airborne forces. The Second Army, by-passing Eindhoven, has advanced 15 miles in just over 24 hours.
In the fight for Boulogne the fortress of Mont Lambert surrendered yesterday to the Canadians, who now hold most of the town east of the river. On the American Third Army front General Patton’s tanks are 18 miles beyond Nancy.
